Bob Valvano says Tom Jurich treated him like crap

Once Rick Pitino and Tom Jurich are finally gone, you’re going to hear a lot of stories about how they were behind the scenes. For Pitino, most of what you will hear will be about how sad it is that it had to end this way. For Jurich, a lot of people will say he was a jerk.

ESPN Radio’s Bob Valvano isn’t waiting for Jurich to be officially gone to say how he really feels. Valvano went on the air and said, “For about 10 years, Tom has treated me like utter crap. And I don’t think I’ve deserved to be treated like that.”

“I’ll go you one better,” he continued. “There are a lot of people in this city who feel the same way, and didn’t step forward and still may not now.”

Valvano said if it turns out Jurich is not gone; his comments may come back to haunt him, but he’ll deal with that later.

    I detest people like Tom Jurich. I’m thankful Bob said the same thing over and over because it bears repeating as far as I am concerned. It really shows just how disgusting the entire scene over in U of L athletics truly is. They have been their own worst enemy and he certainly deserves the very worse as far as I’m concerned. It’s amusing, the terms “Lousyville” and “Loserville” and “The Ville (as in villain) were terms used by UK fans like myself for playful degradation of an arch rival and now under the power mongering bullying strong arming direction of Tom Jurich these slogans could not have so completely gone from figurative to literal.
